Year 2

Year 2 is taught by Mrs Bareham


In Year 2 we continue the transition from Year 1 but the learning is more independent,gathering all of our skills from our school journey so far and applying them to make progress in all subjects. We continue to learn practically and encourage the pupils to be the experts.


Pupils are greeted on the door by their teachers and they enter the classroom with an early morning activity. Each day the children partake in a Writing lesson before playtime. This is followed by phonics where some children will continue to learn letter sounds and others will be learning further spelling patterns, grammar and punctuation. We have a daily reading session where we promote the love of reading and later in the week children will answer questions on their text. We also have a daily Maths lesson using a range of resources and strategies to support the children in becoming confident mathematicians. The afternoons are focused on our topic (this may be Science, Geography, History, Art, Music or R.E).
